Fifteen new species of Chilicola subgenus Oroediscelis are described and illustrated. The following 11 species are from Argentina recording a remarkable diversity and the first records of the subgenus in the country: Chilicola capillitas Packer and Dumesh, new species, C. abrebotellas , Packer and Dumesh, new species; C. goloboffi Packer and Dumesh, new species; C. fritzi , Packer and Dumesh, new species; C. rozeni Packer and Dumesh, new species; C. roigi Packer and Dumesh, new species; C. carpe...

We describe Lepidotrigona satun Attasopa and Banziger new species from southern Thailand based upon associated males and females (workers). The new species is a member of the L. ventralis species group, which is otherwise represented in Thailand only by L. flavibasis and L. doipaensis . We also describe the males of the latter two species, associated with nests from close to their type localities in northern Thailand. Lepidotrigona doipaensis Schwarz and L. flavibasis (Cockerell) had previously ...

Braunsapis scorpius Packer, new species, from Vietnam, is diagnosed, described, and illustrated. In addition to adaptations commonly associated with related social parasites ( i.e ., reduced metatibial hairs, short mouthparts, and absence of a basitibial plate), it has a remarkably recurved metasomal apex. It is compared to other socially parasitic members of its genus from Asia and a key to females of these social parasites is provided.

Fideliine bees are an archaic group with a disjunct distribution mostly restricted to deserts of South America and South Africa. This group was previously thought to be more diverse in Africa than in South America, where only one genus (Neofidelia) comprising five species is known. Here we describe a species belonging to a second South American genus: Xenofidelia colorada Packer gen. et sp.n., from northern Chile. The species is illustrated and its phylogenetic position within Megachilidae is as...

We compare the diversity of bees in the Chilean fauna as understood from traditional taxonomy-based catalogues with that currently known from DNA barcodes using the BIN system informed by ongoing morphology-based taxonomic research. While DNA barcode surveys of the Chilean bee fauna remain incomplete, it is clear that new species can readily be distinguished using this method and that morphological differentiation of distinct barcode clusters is sometimes very easy. We assess the situation in tw...

Summary While pollinators are widely acknowledged as important contributors to seed production in plant communities, we do not yet have a good understanding of the importance of pollinator specialists for this ecosystem service. Determination of the prevalence of pollinator specialists is often hindered by the occurrence of cryptic species and the limitations of observational data on pollinator visitation rates, two areas where DNA barcoding of pollinators and pollen can be useful. Further, the ...
